The thermodynamic properties of platinum were reviewed here by the author in 1994. However, the use of superior values for the enthalpy of liquid platinum have resulted in a major revision of the thermodynamic values for the liquid phase. One consequence of the revision is that the boiling point at one atmosphere pressure is altered from 4125 K, as calculated in the 1994 paper, to 4149 K. Previously accepted values for solid platinum are not altered, and there are only very minor changes to the gaseous phase values as a result of using a new atomic weight for platinum and the CODATA 2002 recommended values of the fundamental constants.
